USI is a member of the Worldwide Broker Network (WBN), the world’s largest fully integrated network of Independent Property and Casualty brokerage firms.

As part of a new client review, USI worked with a large multi-national oilfield products manufacturer and distributor to analyze their existing international program. The program was originally structured by the insurance carrier leaving the client with less control. USI’s International team reviewed coverage terms, conditions and program structures in place in 14 countries throughout the world—speaking with leading brokers in each country through the Worldwide Broker Network of which USI is a member. USI’s team gained an understanding of local regulatory issues, costs and coverage enabling us to decide, with the client, the most efficient way to structure the international risk program. After comprehensive analysis, USI implemented several changes to achieve compliance with multiple country regulations, reduce premium cost and broaden coverage and limits in catastrophe exposed areas of the world where local coverage was insufficient—giving the client control of placement instead of the insurance carrier. In addition to $200,000 in direct premium savings, the client was protected from an estimated $10 million of catastrophic weather risk it had previously been unknowingly retaining at several international locations.
